This App simply doesn't work!! I'm in Adelaide with location services enabled but the app only lets me see Sydney! The email password facility didn't work either. The previous version was simple and effective. Update as at 22 May 2015. It's almost a year later yet the app still doesn't work as you would expect. It takes little or no notice of your favourites or Of your location and it still takes ages to load.
Good. But needs a couple of improvements This app is very convenient. But theres a couple of obvious things missing. 1. The current tickets page doesnt show the seat number. 2. The movie summary doesnt show the movie duration. These items ate also not showing on the full site available for mobile, as far as I can tell. Th he only way to get them is on the PC Hoyts site. And by printing the ticket. Defeats the purpose of a mobile app with these important bits of information missing.
New App rarely works Prior to upgrade the App worked beautifully used it all the time - loaded quickly, quick and direct menus, kept my cinema preferences and was easy to purchase tickets. New App is very poor in comparison, quite often doesn't load and when it finally does (10-15 min on occasion!) I find it has not kept my preferences and the menus are not as user friendly as old App. Need to allow us to use the old App again! I do not bother with this App any more and just go straight to website for information. A real shame!
Update your app so it will actually load please! Will not load. Keep checking to see if there's an update to install, but disappointed everytime! You need to fix this issue. Please hurry up and do so, so I can continue using this app instead of having to access your website in my phone's internet browser. This was a great app before I updated. Make it work again and I'll give it 5 stars. People, don't install or upgrade to this version of the app, it's useless!
Barely useable but don't have another choice Slow to load - sometimes will need to close app and reopen for it to load. Doesn't save cinema for faster access despite 'save' button. Buggy and too data intensive for what it offers. Previous version was far better as it was simple and quick. I dislike it showing movies not yet playing or already over for today when looking at today's movies. App needs to be redesigned - either fire your dev team or give them the resources they need to do it right.
Pretty Bad Firstly it takes a serious 2 minutes and 55 seconds to open with a good phone and good Internet connection. There are no pictures next to the movie listing. The app will pause for long periods of time. Its literally 3 times quicker and more informative to simply Google the cinema and session times.
Updates for future HOYTS promotions.
